There's a sardine thread going - a topic that always perplexes me, because it's a Benny for me, and it may well be the only food I hate.
But the website above - and others on the Internet - reveals that it is among the top foods people hate.
There's a sardine site with a poll, showing that 30% of respondents "hate" sardines.

If you could name one food you hate, as in  , what would it be? And is it a Benny, a Neutral, or an Avoid for you?

PS: I read with interest that Cilantro is on the top-hated-foods list: I happen to like it very much, but many don't - and there we read that it's a "genetic-taster" thing.

Blue cheese.

It is an avoid for me - but still, a B who doesn't love every cheese

Choko / Chayote - not sure if it is rated, but I detest those too.

Olives.

Love xvoo, can not stand to be near an olive though!

Fish ... except for (fried, avoid) catfish and I'm learning to like baked fresh salmon. Half of fish types are avoids on my Swami. Oily fish smell and taste make me nauseated. Gag!

I'll add a few foods that I won't eat ever.

Sardines I agree are gross.  I remember a kid in the sixth grade that brought a can of sardines for lunch and the can had a rollback metal key.  When I saw those little fishes with the heads floating in oil or water (whatever) I wanted to move to another table.

Now that I eat alot more veggies (trying to be a proper A) but actually finding that I like alot more and delighting in new ways to have them I still won't go near:

a.  a wax bean
b.  a lima bean

Thank goodness there are still alot more beans to choose from in the quest for nutrition.

I don't like tomatoes! Never have!!!  *gag*  

They were a Non-Secretor BTD Neutral, but my SWAMI confirms that they are not for me.  SWAMI Toxin!

Right.
The food y'all name here must be "gag-worthy" for you, and you have to have tasted it.
And tell its BTD/GTD/SWAMI status for you, too.

In addition to sardines, the only thing that might qualify for me is certain raw seafood.

- - - -

Other than that, no one's ever served me pig eye, for instance, so we don't need to go there, though I've seen that eaten on TV.

In the Middle East there's a certain street food that's very, very popular. I think it's eaten mostly by men. Maybe it increases virility? I didn't go for it, but I didn't even taste it, so I can't include it here.

In some cultures, they make it a point to serve every and I mean every part of every animal slaughtered. Let's leave it at that.

I was raised in the Appalachian Mountains of eastern Kentucky and at that time, people didn't waste any part of the animals that were their food.  I've eaten all kinds of body parts, but none of them *gagged* me.

Hey! Yaeli knows about the street food  .

No, darlin', we're talking about the tinned variety. Oily, smelly, etc.
Hey, I thought of another one: Anchovies. Not a fan.

I can't think of any, not really. I used to say "brussel sprouts" (an avoid for me anyway) but I did once have them "cooked properly" and they were actually tasty. Not that I could ever make them palatable, but I think I need to take them off my "eww- gag!" list because of that.

I'm a Gatherer. I can eat anything.

Not as such, but they were included in the head cheese we made from beef or pork heads.  The head cheese was very tasty, although I now know that both pork and beef are avoids for me personally...

I have never had a repeated gag-reflex from any food I have attempted to eat, although I haven't tried limberger cheese or durian...  I've heard both of these have powerful odors.

With some foods, I smell death, fear, decay. I can't even consider tasting it. Whether this is emotional, intellectual, or instinctual is a very good question. We have a saying in our home: " Wanna Eat--Gotta Eat".(Lacking at least some degree of this, we'd all be trying to live on chocolate ice cream). Spirulina falls into the gotta-eat category. Nearly everthing else I eat falls into the wanna-eat catagory. There is a broad spectrum between foods in each catagory, but the gag reflex, I would think, operates independently of the intellectual or emotional negotiation that allows us to endure the more unpleasant choices.

Illness, and factors like gut health could strongly influence our perceptions and prejudices, but instinct I doubt can be reasoned with. Suppressed perhaps, for better or worse.


In the case of sardines...

I swear, if you blind-taste good sardines, you'll say "best oil packed tuna I've ever tasted".

Yes, they are either great or horrible depending on brand.

Apparently 30% of the population hates sardines. That's hardly evidence of some emotional issue or Personality type, as Amazone believes.
Note, too, that a response of disgust of cilantro, which I personally really like, has been similarly found to be common among a very large segment of the population and to be genetically linked.
I don't judge people on the basis of there being a foodstuff they don't fancy.

This is why I've kept an open mind. Waiting to be served that terrific tin of little oily fishies.
I don't care for mackerel, either.
And have you ever tasted farm-raised salmon? Tried to cook with it, and it stunk up your whole house? Same sort of thing.
On the other hand, there are many people who smell sea vegetables and are afraid of their "fishiness", though there are ways to prepare them that bring out more of their freshness and play down the unwanted note; I really like sea vegetables - even the "fishy" ones. I also tend to like the stinky cheeses some others reject.

Okra - especially when it's slimy and cilantro.  Also don't like the taste of beer - always tasted "soapy" to me.

The first time I tasted lamb, I thought it was the most intetesting delicious meat there was and I ate it on occasion for several years. Then one day about 6 or 7 years ago I was making lamb stew for St. Patrick's Day, doing the happy dance "Oooh, that smells so yummy. Mmm mmm mmm" Then, I don't know what happened, how or why, but the smell of it all of the sudden just instantly turned my stomach, and I haven't been able to tolerate it since. Strange...
It's a black dot.

My most hated food would be okra. It's the slime.  Also I don't like bitter greens nor the
bitterness of any vegetable.  Beer tastes soapy to me too, but also I taste bitterness.  I cannot
stand the taste or the smell of cumin.  Once I tasted a durian and thought I'd gag.

I abhor brussel sprouts.  And what weird is that nearly every person I've met who manages to find out that I don't like them has insisted on fixing them for me the "right" way.  And every single "right way" preparation has repulsed me.

I love other cabbage veggies and even love kim chee.  It's just the brussel sprout.

Blech.

I laughed, because I would have been one of those fixers, if I'd had the chance!  
Can you describe for us what it is about the brussels sprout that is "blech"? Like: How is cabbage delicious but Brussels sprouts miss the mark? If you can.

I don't know what it is, actually.  I like all other cabbages and calciferous veggies - I actually can't think of one that I don't like -  but the BSs just disgust me.  They taste...tanic to me...like iced tea that's too strong and old.  There's a bitter undertone that has never been masked, no matter how they've been cooked.

I also can't stand sauerkraut - the smell even nauseates me - yet I love all kim chee and other fermented veggies.

I find it amazing that anyone hates brussels sprouts.   I love them.  I cut them in half, drizzle with
evoo and sea salt and roast slowly in the oven.  They come out sweet and yummy.  But I really
don't like broccoli.  Cauliflower is okay, but broccoli, ugh!  Don't like rutabagas or turnips.  Too
bitter.  Just can't stand anything bitter.  Sometimes walnuts have a bitter taste to me. I think it's
in the skin of the nut.

The responses to this post give me a chuckle because thank goodness we have the freedom on this forum to express our preferences.  It's true I am a little "gobsmacked" (it's a British term that is so befitting in certain circumstances).  Isn't that one reason why we drifted toward Dr. D'Adamo's individual style of eating for bloodtype?  I know I did.

Chloe, I love brussel sprouts also (just rediscovered them about a year ago) and the way you cook them.  Have you ever thought to add chopped figs (black mission or those other bigger figs (can't remember the name but your hfs would carry them.  They are a nice compliment to the cabbagey
taste of the brussel sprouts.  At one time I would have added crispy pieces of chopped up bacon.
Yum.

Remember I said "at one time" about bacon.  Still, with the figs they are a nice side dish.

Joy

P.S.  I also love all the other veggies you mentioned - broccoli, turnips (cooked and mashed with some butter), cauliflower (previously thought it was totally tasteless and still so hard even when cooked you could break a tooth)  It's amazing some of the assumptions I can create in my mind!

Hated egg salad until I was pregnant with the second kid. That kid loves egg salad. Older kid can't stand eggs of any type.

I hate poultry. Especially turkey. And organ meats.

Love stinky cheese and several other avoids!

I really don't care for chicken, either.  The only good part of a chicken, for me, is the skin.  I'll eat chicken thighs and wings, but my only use for a chicken breast (especially skinless....eewwwww) is dog food (raw, of course).

However, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE turkey.  It is one of my very best foods.  Not a huge fan of the breast, but I love the rest.

Not a huge fan of organ meats.  I grew up with them, but they're just not my thing.

I live with a "super taster" and THAT is a nightmare.  She hates far more foods than she'll tolerate eating.

Well I would eat most veggies

I love several of my avoids( olives, pork,prawns, tomatoes) so not much help there
Certain things I really don´t care for- but hate them nay

I don't like (and won't eat) greasy meats, like duck . Fortunately, most are avoids.  Some of the foods I've had an aversion to, but are not avoids, that I've built up the nerve to try, have turned out to be foods I actually like! Okra comes to mind.

I love almost all veggies, except potatoes, and that's only because of the reaction I get in my joints. Plus, they are a toxin. I love bitter, sweet, sour, spicy, salty.


Let go of resistance; feel appreciation for what is, and eagerness for what is coming.

Oh, and I just realized, after reading the "green tea" thread, that I hate green tea.

I've tried dozens of brands, both cheap and pricy (including Dr. Ds) and tried as many ways of preparing it, but I just don't like it.

That being said, I love black iced tea, but since it's a black dot avoid for me, I make myself drink green iced tea....which I hate.   Go figure.

Hey! Yaeli knows about the street food  .
       Hey! What that's suppose to mean? Sounds misfit, to say the least.


Quoted from san j
No, darlin', we're talking about the tinned variety. Oily, smelly, etc.

perhaps should we merely give a try to overcome the word *hate* ...to a more moderate-one like *disliking*...

Where does hate exactly lead you anyway? And where does eating oily, smelly etc. food out of a tin approximately lead you? Where?

Pineapple.

Tried some dried yesterday & it reminded me of this thread.

It is a diamond / beneficial for me too, but it gives me that weird stomach /nauseates every-time I try it whether fresh cut, fresh juice (the worst) even dried or in bromelain caps.

Is there a connection between Ayurvedic dosha and extreme food preferences? It's a system based on tastes: Sweet, Sour, Salty, Bitter, Pungent, Astringent. Bitter and astringent are the least evident in the American diet, and they are great for Kapha, as is Pungent ( ). But these tastes are very aggravating to Vata.

I thought of this when EquiPro was complaining of a tannic (read: Astringent) edge to Brussels Sprouts. She said it's like overly strong iced tea -- another Vata no-no.
Just wondering if the dislike of one of the taste groups can be a kind of marker for dosha and thus a key to refining one's D'Adamo program.

Vata, which does poorly with Astringency, is the only dosha that does well with salt, and the only one that Ayurveda recommends eat seafood/sea-fishes. I have met Vata-types who really like fish skin, which for me is another "blech"  .
Wondering if there's a connection.

Just an aside. I really thrived, back in 2008-9 when I did a combined Ayurvedic/D'Adamo program.

I truly believe Dr D has factored all into swami, including Ayurveda.

Try Jasmine green. Perfumed - you don't taste the green.
Add sweetener, too.

Love Sardines.. make sardine patties using 2 tines of sardines, (without the heads - but they don't come with heads in the cans i get), 2 tbl rice flour, 2 eggs, cayenne powder.

Spread mixture out in a frying pan with a spatula and cook until done and flip and cook on the other.  Cut into 4 pieces.  Sprinkle with lemon.  DELICIOUS.  Like a tune patty.

So you should give sardines a chance... like me.. when I used to not eat dates because they reminded me cockroaches.. another thing i wont' eat! HA!!!  then I tried one and went crazy!  Love them!

Hate brussel sprouts - I'm supertaster so stuff like that or over cooked broccli make me gag.  Completely dislike Blue Cheese or any cheese that smells like feet!  HAAA...

Can't get near liver of any type.  Snails.. Yuck.  

i'm sure there is a whole list of other stuff.. but can't think of it right now.

Can't stand liver or sweetbreads of any kind, brussels sprouts, beets, parsnips, and lima beans. Green tea makes me nauseous--I've tried for years to drink it and it makes me so sick I have to give up on it. I have a hard time with fresh spinach too, it tends to give me digestive problems, as does sushi.

I don't know. I hate that idea.

Just kidding!!! Just kidding!!!  

And add me in for disliking oily 'fishy' tasting fish. When I was young, my Dad had me eat some baked bluefish. I took one bite and spit it out.  

Now I thought I wouldn't like sardines, a bene for me. I bought Season brand skinless boneless sardines packed in olive oil based on a recommend from the Sardines thread. I agree with a previous poster that the taste is very similar to good tuna. I eat them with onion. Very tasty.

I was amused by your list, B45. Your despised vegetables are all B beneficials:
Brussels sprouts, beets, parsnips, and lima beans.
And I like them all!

san j! I've tried to like them, but for me brussels sprouts taste bitter, beets are like a horrible mixture of dirt and sugar, parsnips give me indigestion, and lima beans are so starchy and acrid-tasting they make me queasy. So, more for you
